Apprenticeship

We have a number of ways that you can gain valuable experience after your training at the Reiki Center of Greater Washington. All of these begin after you have completed a second-level course (either Usui Reiki II or Sekhem-Seichim-Reiki II).

Assisting

You begin as a Student Assistant, helping in classes of the type that you have taken and are planning to eventually teach. The assisting usually involves setting and cleaning up before and after classes, reviewing the classes in the lecture and hands-on periods, helping to create a supportive environment for the students by bringing them water or tissues, etc. We encourage prospective Master students to assist at a minimum of two classes before beginning their Master studies.

Interning

On an annual basis, (or as Interns complete their respective Internships), RCGW invites applicants to its Internship Practitioner program. The Internship program is for those students who believe that they want to become professional practitioners. It provides the opportunity for Interns to practice healing with a professional healer at RCGW or the Whitman-Walker Clinic one day per week. Over the course of a number of months, the Intern participates in a minimum of 70 documented hands-on sessions at the center or a program sponsored by the center AND 30 documented distant healing sessions. These sessions vary in length between 30 and 120 minutes. The Intern documents the session and discusses it with the practitioner with whom he or she is working. At the satisfactory conclusion of the program, the Intern discusses his or her experiences with the Director of the center and becomes eligible to be a practitioner at the center, subject to RCGW policies and available space. Internship Practitioners are required to receive a minimum of one paid session with an RCGW practitioner each month.

Internship Practitioner applicants are encouraged to have completed the following before applying:

  • Usui Reiki I training
  • Usui Reiki II training
  • Sekhem-Seichim-Reiki I-II training
  • Master-level training in either Usui Reiki or Sekhem-Seichim-Reiki or both

In addition to its Internship Practitioner program, RCGW also has an Internship Teacher program. This program provides the opportunity for Master-level student Interns to co-teach courses at the center with the RCGW Director. Each Intern is responsible for observing one course (of each type) and co-teaching three courses (of each type). At the satisfactory conclusion of the program, the Intern becomes eligible to teach courses at the center, subject to RCGW policies and available space.

Internship Teacher applicants are encouraged to have completed at least two of the following before applying:

  • Usui Reiki Master training
  • Sekhem-Seichim-Reiki Master training
  • Karuna Reiki ® Master training
  • Lightarian Reiki ™ training

Internship Teachers are required to schedule a minimum of one paid session with an RCGW practitioner each month and to pay food & lodging costs for the Master classes in which they Intern.
